Imagine yourself walking through colorful and tropical streets, bathed in bars, pedestrians, live music, local cuisine, mexican dishes, unlimited food-trucks, italian finger-food … It is the ideal place to spend a fun night in a beach town with friends. Suggestions? Why not try the Foodies Truck Bavaro, Wacamole, Citrus, Joy Nutritional Pop or Living Room Bar ?
CATAMARAN TOUR IN PUNTA CANA
There is one single thing to do once in Dominican Republic: SAIL! Visiting Punta Cana and not going on a Catamaran Tour or a Party Boat is like, going to Paris and not visiting the Eiffel Tower! Enjoy a fun sail along your preferred coast and take a dip into the underwater world of Punta Cana; full of fish, colorful reefs and orange starfish. Visit even a magical natural pool in the middle of the sea, where with water up to the hips, you can relax and share an unforgettable moment with your companions. All this, to the rhythm of Caribbean beats and a refreshing Open Bar. It doesn’t matter if your sail is across Saona Island, the Bavaro Coast or Cap Cana, once in Punta Cana, one must sail…
GO VIRAL ON THE ROUNDED MOUNTAIN SWINGS
According to modern millennials legend… if you don’t take a picture, it did not happen! Accept our invite to Montaña Redonda; a spot that has become famous for its particular swings that seem to throw you into the abyss. Once at the foot of the mountain, get on board of a fun safari truck that will take you to the top, where besides being able to photograph yourself on their swings, you will be able to take some unrealistic pictures on the Flying Witch Brooms, to softly swing from one side to another in the relaxing hammocks placed among some trees, to enjoy the many spectacular views, to taste delicious Dominican dishes, to find typical handmade gifts, to do some paragliding and to even do some camping at night!
NIGHT OF THEATER, DISCO AND CIRQUE DU SOLEIL AT COCO BONGO NIGHT CLUB
If you are one of those who like to keep the party going, you can do some warm up in Congo Bar, where you can do the opening with some premium drinks on top of their dancing podiums and start to lead the party. Let the fun then keep on rolling to Coco Bongo, the only night club in the entire Dominican Republic, where you can enjoy this one of a kind experience that goes from trapeze artists, gymnasts, actresses and dancers to the characters and scenes of the most recognized international films, such as Beetle-Juice, The Mask and Spider-Man! On this night-club, you will enjoy a mix of several musical shows and a spectacular atmosphere that will allow you to dance the night away or that would keep you entertained until the end as well, if you preferred to play a spectator …
ADRENALINE IN THE BOOGIES OF PLAYA MACAO
Another of the favorite excursions is the exciting Boogie Ride, which takes you on a safari adventure full of adrenaline through plantations bathed in mud and through natural landscapes, made of typical wooden houses and barefoot toddlers, to the magnificent unspoiled beach of Macao, colored with green palm trees, dozens of micro food shacks, local crafts and strong waves to give surf a try. Once near the beach, you will have the chance to share with the local community and to swim in the same beach with them! The whole thing will feel like getting to meet the wild side of Punta Cana on 4 wheels. Have you heard of Adventure Boogies? Why not give Boogies a try with them?! Their cave stop will make you go insane!
When returning home, we can assure you that your trip will no longer seem so short and that it will have been worth the flight!
